Birds of Prey at West Hill!

January 2019

We were very lucky today to have Alan from Eagle Heights visit our school today to teach our children about birds of prey. We met Sybil the Harris Hawk, Sparky the Barn Owl and Buster the Bald Eagle amongst others. Sybil and Buster even flew over us!  They are incredibly impressive animals and we were incredibly privileged to welcome them to West Hill. We are very grateful for Alan at Eagle Heights for coming in today free of charge.
